Vintage conditions

The 2015 growing season was one of the driest and earliest on record, with reds being harvested 1 to 2 weeks earlier than usual. There were none of the typical heat waves, and cooler than normal temperatures created ideal conditions for ripening and harvesting. Very little rain coupled with strong winds translated into extremely healthy grapes, with small berry size, good sugar levels and lots of natural acidity.

Vinification details

The grapes were harvested at peak ripeness, then de-stemmed, crushed and left to cold soak for 2-4 days. The individual components were fermented naturally in stainless steel tanks until dry, with gentle pumpovers performed regularly. The wine was left on its skins for three weeks of post-fermentation maceration. It was then pressed and returned to tank for malolactic fermentation and ageing.
